My son and I have hunted with Wild Country Outfitters on the Deseret Ranch in Utah since 1997. Together we have created some of the best memories of our life! We recently purchased a lease on the Sooner Ranch in Oklahoma and both killed our first whitetail bucks in 2016.
Tommy Land and his staff have been so good to us over the years that words really can’t describe the experiences we have had. Tom's guides are all very professional and know the ranch and the animals like the back of their hands.
You will never see or experience anything as spectacular as the elk rut on Deseret. The amount of mature elk that you see on the ranch is like nowhere else in the world. My son and I have taken many large mature bulls over the years.
Being on this property for such a long period of time I also have been able to see the changes that have been made to their deer program. The guides do their best the age the deer and you cannot harvest a buck unless they determine that he is 5+ plus in age. Also, the number of deer tags has been greatly reduced over the years. What a difference it has made in the deer size and overall population. My son and I have been able to harvest monster mule deer on the ranch.
The lodging is also first class. After its recent renovations, all of the hunters get their own room with private bathrooms and showers. You can also plan on putting on about 5 pounds during your hunt week because the food and the cooks are amazing!
